Halloween Pumpkin Critters

Lumpy, bumpy, twisty mini-gourds are a strange bunch, but they so perfectly lend themselves to being converted into a wacky gaggle of Halloween critters, creatures, and bugs. Pipe cleaners, beads, and drinking straws are all you need to bring these weird-o pumpkins to life.

Head over to Parents Magazine to see the rest of the kooky Halloween pumpkin bunch!

What You Need:


How to Make It: Stick ball-head pins into pom-poms to make eyes. With screwdriver, poke small holes into gourds and insert chenille stems for legs (and/or wings). Slip beads over the ends of the legs to make feet. For a different look for the legs (as shown at far left), slip paper straws over the chenille stems.
